    Sorry to bring this up again but I’m still having lots of issues with this, see my earlier message below from a few months back…

    Hi, I did post this in the comments but I thought it best to submit the problem here too.

    Any chance you know about all these errors I’m getting from Google since I started using your theme?

    Structured Data > hentry (markup: microformats.org) Missing: author Missing: entry-title Missing: updated

    Does tho slink help… http://blog.no-panic.at/2006/11/16/hatom-and-wordpress/ something to do with how H1 titles are named?

    Hi, not sure if you got my PM, I know its a lot to go through?

    I’m unsure which course of action I should take and what PHP files I should alter, should I hold off until you get back to me?

    Just don’t want to break my site.

    Thanks again – Ian

    Ian,

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Can you pls make the following change – that should resolve this issue. Pls change the function mo_custom_entry_published() at line number 68 of framework/functions/post-functions.php file to add updated field as shown below. Pls do not copy the code below but just add updated field as shown below since copying code might cause issues when HTML is part of the markup –

    if (!function_exists('mo_custom_entry_published')) {
    
        function mo_custom_entry_published() {
    
            $published = '' . sprintf(get_the_time('M')) . '' . sprintf(get_the_time('d')) . '';
            return $published;
        }
    }

    I see the issue on the pages. Pages in WordPress are not typical hatom entries with author, date etc. though they have title but in our case, the title is pushed to the top of the page instead of displaying within content. We try to maintain the hatom format for blog posts only and not pages. I would assume this would be true of most wordpress themes. To validate this, I checked the default WordPress theme – Twenty Fourteen and it showed errors too for pages. You can view them here –

    http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=http%3A%2F%2Ftwentyfourteendemo.wordpress.com%2Fdefault-page-templates%2F

    The errors are being shown since WordPress inserts automatically some hatom terms like hentry for all pages, post and custom post types. But we cannot follow strict rules for displaying titles, author, entry date etc. for others. Only blog posts and possibly news items conform to this format. I would personally not worry too much about these errors reported on pages. The problem would be visible on large majority of WordPress pages.
